I'm pretty intense with how I do my cardio. At my highest levels I'm running following the intensity index at the following speeds at a 1.0 incline.
Level 5: 6.0 mph
Level 6: 7.1 mph
Level 7: 8.2 mph
Level 8 : 9.3 mph
Level 9: 10.4mph
Level 10: 11 mph
I then cool down by going to 8.0 for a minute and cooling down by .5 in minute durations after until I get to 5.5 where I then walk for a few minutes. If I didn't do this, I think I'd have a heart attack. You don't go from 11 mph to nothing in two minutes.
Anyhow, I took plain creatine for the first time a half hour before my cardio and it made a huge difference in how I was able to push myself and felt. I highly recommend you guys try it. After having body for life in my life for four years, I can't believe it took me so long to try it!
Correction: 11.5 is my level 10 intensity.
You must be a pretty good long distance runner. 10mph was my 10 and I can't even imagine doing 11mph, much less 11.5mph. I'd fall of the freakin treadmillt. You're a beast!
I didn't start that fast! I started with level 5 being a walking space with 8 being my level ten with no incline. I just progressively needed more intensity.
Impressive. I would like to get to that level. I had ankle surgery about 12 years ago and it's never been the same. Part of it is also being 49 years old. Regardless, I would still like to run more.
